Steel Panel Foundations is a professionally engineered, composite panel foundation system that employs modular construction, allowing builders and developers to construct watertight foundations that don't promote mold growth, protect occupants from radon exposure and are insulated to keep cold and heat outside the foundation.

The system's lightweight construction promotes economical transportation costs and enables long wall lengths, thus reducing both seams and on-site labor costs. Installing these new systems allow builders to begin construction the same day the foundation walls are set. Unlike concrete, there is no waiting for the material to cure to begin framing, and the below-grade living area is ready for drywall. The SPF system eliminates the scheduling hassles associated with concrete curing times and coordinating concrete and foundation contractors.
